Tashigang Village(扎西岗村) is located in Nyingchi Prefecture, Tibet, which is a couple of kilometers east of the small town of Lunang. In Tibet, there are many places called "Tashigang", which means "auspicious place". Tashigang Village in Lulang Town is located between snow-capped mountains and forests. The bushes and dense spruce, pines, and green hills form a "forest sea". The rolling mountains are tightly wrapped by the scattered trees, and then the forest sea stretches away in all directions with the sight. At the end of the sight is the holy snow-capped mountain.
Tahigang Village is a gorgeous tiny rural village. For many travelers, it's a highlight of a trip to this part of eastern Tibet. There're fields of deep green barley and bright yellow rapeseed and surrounded by forested mountains. Tashigang, with its pigs and chickens roaming free, is made up of a handful of large stone Tibetan block homes, six of which have been converted into fabulous family guesthouses.
This is a wonderful chance to stay with a Tibetan family and eat genuine Tibetan home-cooked food, and the countryside offers an almost endless selection of walks. Locals are also on hand to rent horses for short treks into the hills.
Some villagers turn their homes into guesthouses. All of them have almost identical facilities and prices. If you are planning for shops or a restaurant, walk 20 minutes east along the main highway to the one-street town where you can find a couple of Tibetan teahouses and some Chinese restaurants.
